5:17 pm
a higher minimum wage and free public college tuition let's go live to our correspondents you have a town c.u.z. in washington d.c. in shihab last time betty sanders was picked to the post by hillary clinton this time he's entering the the field with a fairly crowded a ray of outstanding women candidates right but the reason why it's so crowded already is all of these candidates have the clad this because they are words about bernie's on his getting into the race he now enters the race as the front runner he has the biggest nationwide network of support his campaign structure the largest base of donors many of them small donors he has the best name recognition so now he is the front runner only joe biden barack obama's vice president polls better amongst democratic primary voters than than bunny saunders joe biden has announced as yet about seems to be perhaps where we're heading is another battle between the progressive wing of the democratic party as which was
5:18 pm
bernie sanders is now seen as the leader of even though he is an independent and he outs transformed the democratic party as a result of his twenty sixteen run and that sent some to right wing which was obviously hillary clinton's win in the last election which lost to donald trump which joe biden may well take on and some some of the other comments or distrust of that back closer to his well which is that corporate wing that certainly is making pains to say it isn't socialism isn't going for for huge radical change but many of the elements to his pitch this time around seem to be exactly the same as they were in twenty sixteen and they still going to have residence you think. well that was the point he made in the video that he released he says we're going to complete the revolution that we began in twenty sixteen of anything things are much worse unprecedented inequality he took once again about how the top three billion as in the u.s. are in the same amount of wealth as the bottom fifty percent of america's population
5:19 pm
as far as wealth is concerned these are all very resonant messages so resonant that again various other candidates within the democratic party have taken them on so he said he is running on issues as you mentioned of inequality of minimum wage or free tuition for college education addressing inequality and what do you have these people believe in when he talks about this stuff when you look at commodity areas for example the california and started to sing very well or relatively well in the polls right now or cory booker or others these are folks who actually don't have a terribly good record on these issues they've taken money from the lobbyist they've taken money from wall street or the criminal justice system or whatever so they have some i mean people don't necessarily believe them when they say ok now we're all for a we're all full fighting against inequality against the system but he saw those people do believe that should be an interesting fight you have a time to live from washington thank you i mean a u.s. policy exam because sixteen states is suing the president in an attempt to block

5:21 pm
have a couple of reasons for that challenge the first they say is that the president does not control spending congress does under the u.s. constitution the argument that is likely to meet the maid on the president's side is that congress delegated some of that authority to the president under an one thousand seven hundred six law called the national emergencies act with those states also say that they will be using the president's word against him he said i didn't need to do this but i just wanted to do it faster and those states say that they are hurt because they are losing money for law enforcement military and drug interdiction and military construction the case is likely to go to the u.s. supreme court the u.s. district court in california where it will first be heard has often overturned president trump's arguments including on such things as immigration it is possible he will be blocked from this spending but it is unclear whether this case will take
